192 pages, 200 colour illustrations
Please note, this book has been reissued under the Bloomsbury imprint
This illustrated mini field guide is packed with information on 200 species of fungi found in Britain and the near Continent. The range covered demonstrates the incredible variety that exists within the world of fungi, from the better-known groups such as the boletes and russulas, to more esoteric and often strangely shaped types like bracket fungi, clubs, corals, puffballs, stinkhorns and elfcups.
All the species are illustrated with full-colour artworks that show – where relevant – characteristics of shape and other aspects of appearance that change during their lives. A concise written account covers size, description, habitat and the season in which each fungus may be found.
The book also includes a foldout insert with at-a-glance illustrations showing comparisons between similar-looking fungi.
